Opiate Addiction Treatment: An Integrated Approach

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • Understand the interface between medication-assisted treatment and psychosocial treatment • Learn how to use the motivational interviewing when dealing with addicts in early recovery. • Become familiar with the stages of treatment in working with addicts. • Be able to discuss the goals in working with families of addicts. • Recognize the benefits and potential risks in the use of Naltrexone with addicts.

Our current state of knowledge points to many hypotheses, explanations and corresponding treatment methods, and growing all the time. There are many effective biological treatments for addiction that can help decrease drug craving and reduce relapse. As well, many varieties of talk-therapy are effective, depending, of course, on who is using the treatment and who is providing it. In this interview, Dr. Ishani Dalal, a psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of opiate addicts, describes her work at the Positive Sobriety Institute, which combines medication and talk therapy.
